Default Hobo With A Shotgun

I rented this movie from On Demand (for some reason it was put there before it was released in theatres) and I would like to give anyone who wants to see it a warning.

This movie is depraved. I was only able to get halfway through before I had to stop. They cross the line way too many times, with the language and the gore. For example, a school bus full of children is burned ON SCREEN. I beg you, please don't watch this movie

I didn't see that movie

The dialogue in Hobo With a Shotgun is just plain bad. One guy literally says something along the line of "Are you wet? Because you are making my dick thirsty" and some other things I wish I wouldn't have heard

Sorry got it mixed up who had seen that from another thread, was there even any humor or did they go solely for shock value?

Nope. You could tell Machete didn't take itself that seriously

Seriously? There wasn't a serious scene in that movie. It starts with a cameo by Ricky from Trailer Park Boys, for god's sakes. The humor might be a little more subtle, but it's exactly the same kind as Machete. I mean, yes the movie is mean-spirited, the violence is way over the top and the dialogue is intentionally cheezy, but that's what makes it an exploitation movie. It's about a borderline mentally ill homeless person fighting crime with a used shotgun, what do you expect?

Ive seen a lot of negatie reviews popping up. One reviewer said you want to puke and take a shower after seeing it.
